EC recruits first EIC programme managers
In addition to announcing the members of the European Innovation Council (EIC) Advisory Board, the European Commission (EC) also published a vacancy notice to recruit the three to five EIC programme managers for the purpose of the launch and implementation of the enhanced EIC pilot 2019-20. This is a new role, and is expected to be rolled out more extensively during the full implementation of the EIC as of 2021 Inspired by the US agency DARPA, the EC is looking for experts in their fields, able to work closely with fast-moving technology projects and open doors to the wider ecosystem. EIC programme managers will be expected to make a major contribution to achieving breakthroughs in strategic emerging technologies, in particular through the oversight and support to the management of a portfolio of research and/or innovation projects funded by the EIC.
Applications can be sent until 31 July 2019 at 12.00 CET.
